DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Lewy Body Dementia Forecast in 12 Major Markets 2017-2027" report to their offering.

Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is the second most frequent cause of age related neurodegenerative dementia, accounting for approximately a third of all dementias. The presence of Lewy bodies in the brain is linked to low levels of important chemical messengers and the loss of connection between nerve cells. This leads to the progressive death of nerve cells and loss of brain tissue.
